Read and write to Modbus coils and registers
The Modbus Explorer app enables you to read and write to registers through Instrument Control Toolbox™ without having to write a MATLAB® script.
The Modbus Explorer app offers a user interface to easily set up read and write operations, and a live plot to see the values. The read table allows you to easily organize and manage reads for multiple addresses, such as different sensors and switches on a PLC. The app supports a subset of the MATLAB MATLAB functionality. You can do the following in the Modbus Explorer app:
Read coils, inputs, input registers, and holding registers. This is the functionality of the Modbus
Write to coils and holding registers. This is the functionality of the Modbus
